Quick quiz: what personal hygiene chore is acceptable at a public parade?

hair-brush-crop-120.jpg* flossing to get big chunks of meat out of your teeth

* clipping your big old curling yellow toenails

* cleaning your ears with a waxy cotton swab you found

* brushing your hair

Yeah, I suppose if you have to do one of those, hair brushing would be the best.

Unless of course you try one of those Arthur Fonzarelli moves and you can’t even hold on to your brush, and the woman next to you gives a look of disgust, and then the parade marchers start shouting “Dork! Dork! Dork! over the loudspeaker.

He lost his grip on the brush because a stiff breeze came along and started blowing the rug off his head. Everyone knows you can’t hold your toupee and brush it at the same time!

 

looks like some sort of strange ritual to me.

hold head at angle achieved by trying to “visualise” on the left knee, while balancing the “brush”, to emulate a large rampaging beast.

the ritual of the rhino sore arse perhaps

He’s in Turkey, right? COuldn’t he just slap on a fez and avoid all bad hair days? Hello?!

 

Dee, the fez is banned in Turkey as a symbol of feudalism and of religious interference in government. The Turkish government tends to be aggressively secular.
